2012 U.S. Women's Open Qualifying Results

The LPGA returns to Blackwolf Run for the U.S. Women's Open in July, 14 years after Se Ri Pak defeated Jenny Chuasiriporn in one of the most dramatic golf tournaments ever.  Here's hoping Se Ri recovers from her recent injuries quickly enough to be a factor this year!  The sectional qualifiers have been going on for 10 days now, but if you had to rely on the USGA, you'd have to be pretty adept at googling.  They have a pretty well-hidden list of qualifiers and alternates, an even better-hidden list of notables in the various qualifiers, and a much-much-better-hidden list of qualifying sites.

You can find a lot more details scattered across the web (a necessary task because Golfweek apparently stopped updating their "complete coverage" 9 days ago!).  Here are some links to stories and scores I've been able to find:

Still to come:

Cheyenne Woods will play her 1st event as a professional at Carolina Trace next week.  Let's see how she does!

[Update 1 (10:30 pm):  Oh, yeah, Seoul already has 4 pages of posts and we're still still more than a month out.  Should've gone there 1st!]

So Ciganda flew from Europe to Chicago, drove to Lake Geneva, won a 36-hole qualifier at Big Foot Country Club on Monday and within minutes of signing her scorecard was on her way to O'Hare International Airport to fly to Germany."Why here?" said Ciganda, a 21-year-old rookie on the Ladies European Tour. "Because it was the only day I could come." Ciganda shot rounds of 69 and 70 for a 7-under-par 139 total, good for a whopping 11-shot margin of victory in the 36-hole qualifier. She advances to the U.S. Women's Open July 5-8 at Blackwolf Run in Kohler.
